Weather in August

Hi,

We're off to Hambantota in August, can anyone advise of what the weather is usually like in that month?

Thanks,

Anand

Hi Anand,

Should be great and sunny but rough seas.

Thank you.

I had a quick look at Accu Weather and for the week we are there it shows thunderstorms. Are these usually isolated? Or do they last the whole day?

Thanks,

Anand

Yes even drought in some areas, e.g. Wilpattu-A' Pura-Trinco line and north of it. SW beaches have some heavy showers early morning and later afrernoon-evening, but bright sunny days.

All the best,
